Anakeesta is a unique, immersive outdoor experience, located on top of a mountain and accessed from the heart of Gatlinburg. It allows guests to get in-touch with nature while participating in an assortment of fun, man-made activities. As a bonus, it offers some of the best views in the area! 


To reach Anakeesta, you must either ride the airborne Chondola or take the Ridge Rambler military vehicle. Once you've arrived, you have a number of exhilarating activities to choose from! You can race a friend or family member on the dueling zipline. If you're chasing an adrenaline rush but want to stay a little closer to the ground, then you can try out the Rail Runner Mountain Coaster, which features a 400 ft. elevation change and reaches speeds of up to 25 mph. There's also an observation tower called AnaVista Tower (the highest point in downtown Gatlinburg!), a family-friendly splash pad, an an obstacle course called TreeVentrue Challenge Course. There are lots of play areas for kids, including a smaller challenge course and a gem mining station.


Still not convinced? One of Anakeesta's top attractions is their 800 foot suspended skywalk. There are also an assortment of restaurants, which feature good food and drinks set amidst stunning views! 

Single-use adult tickets are $21.99, but adult annual passes are $59.99!
